Global Data Center Solutions Provider CyrusOne Partners with Infinera to Deploy High-Speed Cloud-Based Services in Texas

Global data center services provider CyrusOne (NASDAQ: CONE) and Infinera (NASDAQ: INFN) announced today their partnership on CyrusOne's Texas Internet Exchange (IX), the first statewide IX in the United States. The IX network, powered by the Infinera DTN, based on 100 Gigabit per second (Gb/s) photonic integrated circuits (PICs), is expected to provide high-speed cloud-based services between CyrusOne’s major facilities and third-party carrier hotels in Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio, as well as to customer data center locations. Piloting since December 2012, the CyrusOne Texas IX is expected to launch by the end of March 2013.

“The deployment of Infinera’s Digital Optical Network provides us with a robust platform for high-speed cloud-based services that will ensure service flexibility, minimize bandwidth costs, simplify network operations, and consolidate network architecture. In addition, the Infinera solution reduces latency for active-active disaster recovery requirements,” said Josh Snowhorn, vice president and general manager of interconnection at CyrusOne. “Infinera is one of the most respected optical telecommunications suppliers in the world. To provide this level of technology and support demonstrates our level of dedication to the CyrusOne Texas IX platform.”

The optical network supporting CyrusOne's IX network is based on the Infinera DTN platform, embedded with Bandwidth Virtualization™. Bandwidth Virtualization allows optical capacity to be deployed as and when needed, without lengthy lead times or complex optical engineering. Powered by Infinera’s intelligent Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) software, the DTN platform allows CyrusOne to quickly and easily provision bandwidth circuits on their schedule and quickly respond to the needs of their dynamic network. The simplicity of Infinera’s DTN platform, based on PICs, also provides CyrusOne with high reliability and a simple operational experience, assisting data center operators to rapidly deploy and operate their own optical networking systems.

“Data centers are an important part of the IT structure for large enterprises, and Infinera is excited to partner with CyrusOne on their Internet Exchange,” said Scott Chandler, Infinera Vice President, North America Sales. “With Infinera’s Digital Optical Network solution, CyrusOne benefits from the simplicity of operating a high-speed optical network, designed to meet the needs of cloud-based services."
